In my last dream of the early morning hours on August 10, 2015, I turned on the old-fashioned TV to watch a movie already in progress. It was a war movie, starring Pat Boone (looking like he did back in the days of Journey to the Center of the Earth) as the hero in the good army. Interestingly (to me at least), my son was also in the good army. I spotted a very young-looking Obama in the bad army.
The most fascinating thing early in the movie was that the good guys were cloned, thus growing the ranks of the good army 200 times.
In one tearful scene, one of the good soldiers was killed in the late afternoon. As a result, that evening Boone was sent out on a mission that was virtually guaranteed to get him killed, too.
Boone hid in the tall grass - his only available cover - as the bad army closed in around him. A tense gunfight ensued. Obama took pot shots at him, and after a short time it was apparent that Boone was in his sights, and Obama was just toying with him, firing one shot after another, each one closer than the last. Boone's arm and hand had been up in the air, looking rather like a periscope, almost to the top of the grass. He snatched his hand down just as the next shot, neatly but explosively clipping off the seed heads on the grass, would have relieved him of his fingers had his hand been there half a moment longer.
The scene changed to the next morning. The widow of the good soldier who had been killed the day before was hanging laundry, all white, to dry on the line. We then see her deceased husband, looking very much alive. But as she reaches out to him, the holographic apparition expands and vanishes. I eagerly, hopefully, scanned the grassy field behind her for our hero while it was on the screen, but couldn't spot him. Had Boone been killed or did he somehow, against all odds, survive the night?
The scene changed to the gymnasium. As the kids came running in for class, they stopped in their tracks to see Boone singing and dancing for joy next to the far wall. Everyone wondered whether he was the original or a clone. He recognized this, so he stopped to teach the kids.
As part of Boone's teaching somehow, my son stood at attention and was cloned fifty times. As I carefully looked at the clones, I could see both my son and 50 other kids, each with my son's face lightly projected on top of their own. It was easy to pick him out of the group. He was the only one who looked like himself. So it was noteworthy that he was apparently cloned by projection, like the hologram. While each projected clone popped into place at attention and in formation out of nothing, each had a unique face and body, as if my son was projected onto another real young man.
I woke up to the alarm then, trusting that our hero, Boone, really did survive his night mission. Obama in the bad army must have been firing at his clone.
InterpretationFor decades in real life, Boone represented the classic, all-American good guy, as we saw ourselves in the post-war 1940's and 1950's. That was fitting, as he really has been a saint virtually his entire life. Here he represents the righteous saints of America.
Obama chose evil from a young age and has never wavered from it.
The good guys were cloned, growing their ranks, reinforcing the worldwide Great Awakening to repentance and the greatest revival - return to the Lord - that the world has ever seen, which has already begun elsewhere in the world and which is coming to America, too. 200 is the number of expectancy (20) times perfect order (10). While perfect order is from God, expectancy hints at insufficiency, which is another commonly accepted explanation for the number 200. If you have enough, you don't expect more. I believe this relates to the final battle being won by God, not by His army. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendor of His coming. (2 Thessalonians 2:8.)
One of the good soldiers was killed in the late afternoon because it is now late in the last day and evil is rising. Saints around the world are being martyred; there is a cost to being on the side of God's good. Boone's nighttime mission was virtually guaranteed to result in his death because many of us will be asked to put our lives on the line in what appears to be a hopeless situation in the natural. But we must remember that we have the power of the Holy Spirit and the authority of the Name of Jesus. God's authority and power trumps every natural and supernatural opposition. Still, God will call some of us Home through martyrdom. Do not worry beforehand about this! If this is the destiny He has determined for you, God is faithful and will give you the strength to be victorious through it.
Boone's cover was grass, reinforcing that in the natural we may have little or no protection as we face the evil surrounding us. Obama's pot shots closing in on him remind us that satan isn't likely to try to take us down only once and then give up. We can expect one attack after another, and so must remain vigilant, looking out supernaturally and not just with our natural eyes, even as Boone's hand was his periscope. And just as Boone knew the right moment to snatch his hand back to safety, so we will know how and when to move and act when we stay in tune with the Holy Spirit within. We must be quick to obey God! (For an example of looking out supernaturally, see my earlier post, How do you know when you struck a nerve with Satan?.)
The widow hanging clean laundry on the line reminds us that the righteous ones have nothing to hide. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1.) Our sins have been forgiven and washed white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18.) The meaning of her deceased husband's hologram appearing, expanding, and vanishing is hidden from me at this time. If the Spirit reveals it later and directs me to publish it, I will do so through a Comment to this post.
My son will be in God's army at Armageddon. Before then, he will be an evangelist and will bring many lost souls (represented by his 50 clones) to salvation in Christ. My son's face was slightly visible over their faces because each one of us who leads another to Christ is reflected in them. We don't overshadow or overpower them, but our influence is visible in their new lives. We must be diligent, therefore, in ensuring that we represent good examples of living righteously in Christ. (See 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13.) My son and his clones all stood at attention, in formation, because God is a God of order and we must be paying attention to Him regardless of the circumstances around us.
I searched for a good, concise definition of the biblical significance of the number 50, and God directed me to The Significance of Numbers in Scripture on the Agape Bible Study website (edited here):
50 means jubilee - deliverance, release, and redemption. It is the result of 7 squared + 1, and it points to deliverance and rest following on as the result of the perfect consummation of time. [This confirms that the war in the movie is the war in these end times, culminating in the battle of Armageddon, the battle that satan and his fallen angels/demons and evil men are destined to lose to Jesus and His angels and saints, both alive and resurrected.]
- On the fiftieth day after leaving Egypt, God met Israel at Mount Sinai. This was the first Pentecost (this Greek word means "fiftieth day"). Exodus 19:1; 14-16
- Fifty is grace (5) multiplied by perfect order (10).
- In the fiftieth year, known as the Jubilee year, all Hebrew slaves and bondservants were to be freed, and all land returned to the original owner. Leviticus 25:8-19
- On the fiftieth day after the Resurrection of Christ, the Holy Spirit came to the disciples in the Upper Room. This was the second great Pentecost. Acts 1:3; 2:1
The gymnasium is a place that combines fun and learning, play and training. It is a place where children grow in strength and determination, body, mind, and character. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6.) We must remember that children are always watching, always learning. Be careful what you are teaching. Boone sang and danced for joy, not just because he survived the mission, but because he knew his God was with him. If God is for you, who can stand against you? (Romans 8:31. Answer: No one and nothing!)
Obama must have been firing at Boone's clone, because evil spirits, represented by Obama in the dream - even though they have mastered the art of deception - will themselves be deceived by what God has in store for them through us. (See 1 Corinthians 2:9-16.)
